speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin is not very popular in this country. especially with certain constituencies that they're trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel right now trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time. in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa he's going to need for his base. he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very, very difficult spot there. does liz cheney do damage to her credibility saying sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans who are honestly going to say that? >> that was a little over the top. she was trying to clean up for the old man and she had to show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. you know, the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea

. on policy, george w. bush advocated for comprehensive immigration reform. he reached out to democrats like ted kennedy to reach out the broken immigration system in a bipartisan way. he failed, of course, but at least he tried on the policy. and on politics the bush team did so much outreach to the hispanic community that he managed to increase his share of the hispanic vote from 2000 to 2004 when he was dramatically less popular overall. george w. bush got 42% of the hispanic vote in 2004. mitt romney on the other hands, in terms of policy, he's trying to appeal to the public by proposing his immigration policy. he calls it self deportation. he's promising to follow the lead of arizona, of all places, for national immigration law. that sort of outreach has earned him an appeal with hispanic voters that is, look at that, 40 points below president obama. he's even down 18 points from what george w. bush did with hispanic voters. the romney campaign is trying to move the hispanic voters. want to know how? they released this ad yesterday. it features mitt romney's son craig speaking spanish.

presidential leadership. as mr. romney was leaving on this foreign trip, it was announced that george w. bush, the last republican president, will not be going to the convention that will nominate mr. romney next month. and as mr. romney returns from this trip, it is announced that former vice president dick cheney will not be going to the convention either. mr. cheney telling abc news he plans to go fishing instead. so the olympics, not just the trip, but the metaphor, is apt here. this is a passing of the torch. the republican party this week is insuring that the existing torch holders are in fact going to hand it over. but the guy they're trying to hand it over to at this point in his campaign seems more apt to light himself metphorically on fire with that torch than to run it anywhere. joining us now is john harwood, cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thank you for your time. nice to see you. >> hi, ms. leader. >> you can call me anything. after five days of vacation at this point, i'm impuvious to insult. how are republicans in d.c. reacting to the romney overseas trip? is this accom
obama compared with 16% who trusted george w. bush. most countries surveyed have much higher approval ratings of america in 2012 than they did in 2008 when bush was president. and by the way, consider why obama's ratings are low in one area in particular, the arab world. the two strongest justifications given by people in every arab country that was surveyed were, first, that obama has not been fair in dealing with the israeli/palestinian issue and, second, that he's used drone attacks in afghanistan and pakistan to go after terrorists. in other words, the reason obama has lost some of his global popularity is that he's perceived as too pro-israeli and too hawkish. think about that, mitt romney. romney has tried to used the standard-issue cold war republican attack on democrats. the world is dangerous, our enemies are growing strong, obama is weak. the problem is most americans recognize that none of this is really true. the world is actually quite peaceful right now. our adversaries like iran are weak and isolated. china is growing strong, but it has not used its power to contest ame

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen
in the first six months, they are comparable to president george w. bush. of course he won in 2004, but that was the first presidential election after 9/11. the big issue was national security and the big issue now is the economy and, to have these disappointing numbers is a trouble spot and it means president obama has to attack mitt romney, out of touch and doesn't care about the middle class and it will be a negative campaign and close race. >> jamie: thanks to the brain room for keeping us on top of accurate numbers, john cleary today. we were discussing, he and i, of the last four months, three of them we have been at 8.2% and here's the numbers of job created in the first six months during an election year. re-election for these candidates. 8.2%. what are the expectations of the american people come november? >> i don't think much will change between now and then, the president has to make the case the economy is getting better, a little better and there is more work to be done but the -- earlier this year the economy was looking a little stronger and if you go back to the ye

, it was -- it was -- we were in a full recovery mode. but it was way too late to save george h.w. bush. >> greta: i don't know how there could be a recovery between now and november by simple indicators, for instance, we are borrowing money, the interest rate is as low as you can get, you can't loosen up money. there are certain indcaishts where i don't know where the margins, where the president's going to see breathing room. have you problems in europe that are not getting better that have an enormous influence on the economy. nonetheless, he's the president and he gets stuck with it. i don't know -- i don't see any indicator in the economy that will help him enormously. >> i don't think we will have a strong rebound between now and election day. but the only point i was trying to make, even if we did, sentiment may have begun to turn in such a way that it's too late. >> greta: is there one ethnick group or demographic, which is key to the independent vote right now? >> well, no. i don't know how -- i couldn't possibly slice up the independent vote and tell you, you know, what its ethnic composition
as the jeremiah wright candidate and george w. bush didn't run on his service in the national guard. but romney is a one trick pony. the only calling card he has for the presidency is his time in business." has his chief asset, that meaning governor romney, now turned into a liability? >> clearly, the liability in the last 48 hours. i disagree with my friend, david corn, because i think romney can put this behind him. my hope is at 6:00 tonight he will put it behind. his surrogates and his campaign, he can answer questions satisfactory to the american people. i think once that's done, then obama has no way to go to retread it. this narrative that obama wants is fit for them. most voters may not care about this. they want to know that whoever their next president is does have a real plan for prosperity, a real plan to return jobs and all of this other stuff is sort of a sideshow. the president has been successful in kwee ating a big question mark about romney on this issue. all he has to do is have the question mark at the margins in a few swing states. what romney's job is to do, barack obama h
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
can always blame the staff. of course, there might be personal reticence on his part. george h.w. bush was famously averse to using the i-word. there may be a little of that. it might be that the republicans put the white house on the defensive. you remember when he made the call on osama bin laden and announced that we had gotten bin laden in a low key kind of way. the republicans immediately jumped on him and accused him of taking a victory lap and doing unseemly things and politicizing. it might be that the media is not giving him enough credit for telling the story that he has told. i don't disagree that he hasn't done a good enough job but not enough credit for telling a story. when the president comes out and says we passed this bill and here are a lot of the good things it's going to do, it doesn't make the news the way the president is a communist and he's going to give us death panels -- and by the way i'm wearing a funny hat. that tends to lead the news. >> steve mcmahon, he did a good job telling stories in 2008 and seems to have lost the mojo on substantive matters. let's g
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
economic policies will be different from george w. bush. listen to this. >> one, take advantage of our energy resources. particularly natural gas, but also coal, oil, nuclear, renewables. number two, trade. i want to dramatically increa particularly with latin america. number four, show better training and education for our current workers and coming workers. and finally what i call restoring economic freedom. that means keep our taxes as low as possible. >> platitudes. i mean, first of all -- i want trade. sure. right? so some of that is platitudes. >> freedom, justice. >> freedom, justice, the american way. some of that is saying words that resonate. some of that is talking quite specifically about obama era policies. he's talking about keeping taxes low. i'm not sure what he thinks he means by that, but certainly in this moment, president obama has kept taxes extremely low. even in the context of our economic recovery. and i think what he means is maintaining the bush era tax cuts at the top. something that president obama has indicated. he thinks needs to expire for it to move towa

george w. bush, i'm the daughter of liberian immigrants. liberian immigrants had a deferred action program that worked very well for many years. there is even a song out where liberian immigrants thank george w. bush, and that being one of those reasons. but i think we have to be, you know, really specific about the community we're talking about, these young people who are future scientists, doctors, lawyers, contributing to american society, aspiring citizens. rick: understood. >> and prioritize the prosecutions. martha: let me just say i think it's very important to focus on who we're talking about. and there are very, very many worthy individuals, and that's who the program is designed for. i think it's great that the worthy individuals could qualify for some relief. the concern is that there could be an individual who is 28 years old at the prime recruiting age for al-qaida who lies to the government, said he's been in the country since he's 7 years old and that individual just by saying he went to high school is now eligible to work in the united states. we've seen how the mex
